Ubuntu – Open Office Bug: The user interface language cannot be determined


I had this error today when trying to access Open Office. The Ubuntu was freshly Installed and packages looked ok. So there could be only one thing that was wrong: Permissions

What I did:

1.I went to root
2. Changed ownership of .openoffice.org folder
3. Changed permissions to this folder

Copy and paste this and it should work:

  $ cd ~
  $ sudo chown --reference=. -R .openoffice.org 
  $ sudo chmod -R 755 .openoffice.org 
 

If you have this error:

 chown: cannot access `.openoffice.org': No such file or directory

Check the name of the folder of Openoffice:

  $cd ~; ls -la
 

And then use commands above but on the correct directory name.

Cheers
